This week in Pre-K we will be learning about farm animals, machinery, crops and many more things that we would see on a farm. We will talk about how some of these things work and why they are important to us and in our world. On Wednesday and Thursday we will be traveling to the Klussendorf Farm for a tour. While we are there, we will get to see and feed a calf, see other farm animals, learn how they milk the cows, have a string cheese snack and play in the B-I-G sandbox. Please remember that it can be muddy and messy on a farm, so dressing your child in older clothes, as well as rubber boots, would be best. Feel free to send along another pair of shoes for your child to wear at school. :)
**Thanks Cheri Klussendorf and the High School FFA students for coming over to make lip gloss with us.
**Thank you in advance to Ryan and Cheri Klussendorf for opening their family farm up to us for a field trip. I'd also like to thank the other farmers and FFA students who help out to ensure a safe and exciting adventure!
